Hey everyone,

I have been tasked with deploying vsto x64/vsto x86 and pia2007 for a outlook plugin.

My issue is fairly complex for me as I have never done something like this, so my issue is around how to script it.

What I am looking for to accomplish:

1. I need to be able to deploy the vsto file dependant on the OS (x64 or x86)

2. I need to then install pia2007 (it is not OS dependant)

So i think I need to create a startup script that checks for the OS type, and then installs the proper vsto package. Then it installs the pia2007.

Once I have this packaged, then I can focus on the actual plugin push.

My question: Would i just create a batch script, that does the look up of the OS?

this is what I have so far:

msiexec.exe /i vstor40_x86.msi /qn
IF EXIST %ProgramW6432% (msiexec.exe /i vstor40_x64.msi /qn)
msiexec.exe /i o2007pia.msi /qn

Does this make sense? Is there a better way to do this?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
